Jeff Keller Management LLC, the management company for FLOTSAM AND JETSAM and HIRAX, has announced that due to circumstances beyond the bands' and management’s control, the Metal Apocalypse European tour that was scheduled to feature both artists has been canceled.
Says Jeff Keller: "Unfortunately, it was in both bands' best interest to not continue with the tour at this time. We apologize to the fans for this unfortunate circumstance, and I can assure the fans that both bands will be in Europe in 2014 for other touring and festival appearances."
FLOTSAM AND JETSAM recently returned to Metal Blade Records to release their new album, Ugly Noise. Ugly Noise is FLOTSAM AND JETSAM's eleventh full-length album, their first release on Metal Blade since 2001 and the follow-up to their 2010 album, The Cold.
HIRAX will release its new album, Immortal Legacy, on October 22 (six days later in Europe) via SPV / Steamhammer. It will be made available as a CD, gatefold colored LP and a digital download. Philip Lawvere, the artist behind such classic album covers as KREATOR's Pleasure To Kill and CELTIC FROST's Emperor's Return, has designed the Immortal Legacy cover.
